Dear Parents/Guardians,

Mr. Whittington and Ms. Scott are looking to take FOUR deserving 6th Graders to this year’s 2020 Statewide Sixth Grade Honor Chorus event in Athens, GA and your student has expressed interest! This chorus requires responsibility on the student’s part to come to practices offered before school, to work at home and to remain a positive influence in the classroom.  Auditions for these four spots will be held during class on the week of October 21st. For the audition, they must sing a learned song from class, sight read an example of music, and sing their major & minor scales. Ms. Scott and Mr. Whittington have already prepared students in the months leading up to this audition so students should be prepared. 

If your child is selected, they MUST be able to participate in the event itself.

Event information included below:


WHAT:  Statewide Sixth Grade Honor Chorus

WHEN: Thursday, Feb.27th - Friday, Feb. 28th, 2020

WHERE: The Classic Center, Thomas St., Athens, GA

FEES: Registration fee of $35 due by October 28th, 2019

IMPORTANT FACTORS: A parent/guardian must attend with the student, provide transportation to Athens, and pay for all expenses for the trip (hotel, food, etc.); however, if a student is passionate about auditioning and cannot afford the trip upon making it past the first audition, please contact us. We are more than willing to find sponsors and ways to fund this amazing opportunity to any child willing to work for it. All hotel/sleeping arrangements will be the responsibility of the family.  More information about itinerary specifics will be sent home closer to the time of the event.  

Thank you for your support of our choral program!
